Charles visits Somerset flood victims

Prince Charles will tour villages on the Somerset Levels today (Tuesday) to meet residents coping with major flood damage.
Prince Charles is due to visit residents in the village of Muchelney - which has been cut off by floodwater for a month - and farmers at Langport.
The Somerset Levels have seen some of the worst flooding in recent weeks, with villages surrounded by water and hundreds of homes and businesses affected.

The area has also seen growing anger from residents who say they have been let down by the government and the Environment Agency (EA).

The Prince's trip to Somerset comes a day after the head of the EA admitted his organization had not done enough to prevent flooding in Somerset.
